As I've said before, most editors and journalists don't even need to follow orders on a daily, weekly basis - or ever. They do what they know is expected of them.
They are vital, essential accomplices and enablers. Many or most are eager- not reluctant or guilt-ridden - accomplices.
But how many journalists/editors etc were prosecuted at the Nuremberg trials ? None(?)
And after the illegal pack-of-lies invasion of Iraq the careers of the media's war-enablers went from strength to strength.
If the Nuremberg principles were to be consistently applied, 99% of MSM journalists, editors and owners would obviously have been purged, prosecuted and left to rot behind bars in Belmarsh-like puragatory.
